This article from CNN talks about Higher education spending vs prison spending, but the idea is the same. Like higher education costs, conservatives want to cut welfare... either directly or by doing something stupid like making welfare recipients pay for their own drug testing. So what happens? The citizens quit welfare, turn to crime, go to jail where the cost is $50,000 a year-- more than twice what welfare would have given them. Makes sense, doesn't it?
